    Are there any solid(semi affordable), surf/water housing units you guys recommend for the DSCM2 body type? Kind of freaks me out putting my Camera in the water with this guy(http://saltysurfhousings.com/red-dsmc2-camera-housing/). I don't need to go more than 10 feet under water, but I'll be in semi heavy surf, so I'll need to make sure the camera is protected. Needs to fit my Red Epic Weapon + wide angle(canon 11-24 or equivelent) lens.


    Any body used it with the Epic Weapon DSCM2? Let me know!

    Thanks,

    Our PVC version is relatively lightweight because the lead weight that makes it neutrally buoyant for diving is easily removable for surface, surf, etc. use. Price is around $4500-$5,000 depending on exact configuration.

    Contact info below.

    I have one for my Epic W and it's awesome. Definitely the industry standard. To get the smallest possible setup have Sean custom make a setup for you for this camera setup:
    - Epic W camera body
    - Wooden Camera battery plate in the "low" position" https://www.woodencamera.com/cable-l...n-p/220700.htm
    - Paglink battery

    I opted not to get the port for my 11-24 (yet) because the lens is so damn heavy. The 8-15 and 11-16 are just so much lighter. You can choose between the higher or lower capacity Pag batteries to adjust weight depending on what your shoot session looks like.

    Wait, you're in Portland--get in touch??

    +1 for SPL.

    Sean can make pretty much any type of port you need as well.
